Flash in the Pan

The ball spiraled through the air. He saw the scoreboard behind it: two seconds. Snatch, tuck, turn. He’d done the drill hundreds of times.

In a few steps, his stride lengthened as he raced toward the goal line. The horn blew ending the game, and the goal post moved into his tunnel vision while the Earth slowed on its axis.

On the one-yard line, he channeled all his energy into a diving leap. In midair, pads and helmets crashed together. He and his assailant rolled before hitting the ground.

The lightning bolt of pain shot through his neck into his shoulder before he realized he’d hit the ground. He had ended his career with a game-saving goal.

  1. Ouch. Is sport everything? I suppose to some; actually to a lot of players and viewers–not to me but you’ve captured the essense perfectly. As soon as I read ‘diving leap’, I had a feeling something big was coming. And it did. Love this.

    • It really is. I can remember mixing paint years ago for a man who was painting his home (the outside) in college team colors. Yes, purple and gold. His house, his business, his snoball stand, his vehicles. I may have to dig up something about fandom. 😉 I love your lightning flash!
